Description

From the “father of science fiction,” H. G. Wells, comes two masterpieces of speculative science fiction storytelling: The Time Machine and The Invisible Man.

The former propels the time traveling protagonist to the distant year of 802,701 AD. To his horror, he find only a decaying Earth that is being gradually swallowed by the Sun, and where two strange species--the delicate Eloi and the fierce, subterranean Morlocks--inhabit an eerie dystopia.

The latter offers the mesmerizing account of a bitter young scientist who discovers the chemical secret of invisibility. After using on himself, he embarks on a terrifying descent into crime, obsession, and insanity. Both of these science fiction classics are as chilling as they are thought-provoking. 

Easily required reading for any science fiction or thriller fan, don't wait to enjoy classic stories, especially when they are combined into an elegantly designed, clothbound edition that features an elastic closure and a new introduction.

Wells also wrote extensively on politics and social matters and was one of the foremost public intellectuals of his day.
